Interview questions (and prompts for responses)
The ebook contains over 35 relevant, situational questions that will help you prepare for whatever you might be asked in a behavioral interview.
For each question, you'll find out why the interviewer is asking and what they want to know, and prompts for how to respond.
There are also 20 answer prompts for tricky questions, so you'll never have to wonder how to reply to 'Tell me about yourself' ever again!

You'll have to tailor the exact answer you give in the interview to your personal circumstances, but this guide will help you think about the right things and streamline your interview prep.

Confident candidates land more jobs.
As a senior manager in a large corporate, I interviewed lots of candidates for a range of roles.
This ebook is everything I’ve learned about how to make a good impression while being authentic about your experience. It’s what I wished candidates would know before they walked through the door.
As an author and mentor, as well as the creative force behind the popular blog, A Girl’s Guide to Project Management, I talk to managers every day. I’ve found so many people struggle to know where to start with interview preparation.
That’s why I’ve created this easy-to-follow plan for maximizing your success at the interview.
I can’t guarantee you’ll get the job, but I can help you feel confident before the interview, do your best on the day, and finish strong after you leave.

What kind of interview is this suitable for?
The ebook focuses on the ‘classic’ type of interview where you meet one or more interviewer, online or in person, to discuss your career path to date and your suitability for the role. Most of the questions focus on 'tell me about a time...' scenario-based or behavioral questions.
Is this only for project managers?
This ebook covers questions that relate to project management roles. If you are preparing for an interview for a project-related job, like a project manager, project coordinator, project director or similar, then this is for you.
